A propósito da recente transferência do Raul Meireles para o Liverpool
"Meireles. Mr Raul Meireles. He was a masseur at Boavista, a well-known club from Oporto.
Those 'weird shirts' - as they were once described - created an impression on Europe during the 90s. The club was finally crowned Portuguese champions in 2001 but then started to fall.
However, as Boavista receded down the tiers, the stock of Mr Meireles's son was rising and rising.
First he conquered the Portuguese league and now he'll try to win over Anfield. Can he do it? I'm confident he will, unless he returns to his former career as an electrician...
Raul Meireles is a product of Boavista's youth system. His father accompanied his career in the early stages, though he never dreamt his son would forge such a successful career in professional football.
While at Boavista's academy, Raul studied and worked as a car electrician. But then he became an U16 European champion with Portugal and with it a career in football opened up ahead of him.
Cars and electricity would have to wait.
First, he was loaned to Desportivo das Aves, where he was known as the star of the team.
His Aves spell in the Portuguese second division lasted two seasons before he rejoined Boavista in 2003-04."
